Twitter Strategies: How To Create a First Time Auto Response Direct Message

The worst method of messaging on Twitter is the DM aka direct messaging channel. Built as a private messaging channel for people to connect with private information, it has quickly deteriorated into a channel of autoresponder spam messages for MLM, affiliate marketers, and useless junk. The following is the best and most palatable method to utilize autoresponder DM for a first time message to a new follower.

Auto Response Direct Messaging Strategy: The Only Way to Do It

I received this DM from dave_carpenter a  “Success partner for high achievers” whose mission is “Helping people to be the very best they can be.” Nice work Dave as you found a way to leave a first time auto response direct message:

DM Twitter

Conclusion: Dave Does it Right

Dave’s message is:

  • Honest as he states he is “Auto-confirming” aka using a autoresponder so the message is not personalized yet
  • Reassuring the rest of his direct messages will be personalized
  • Affirming he wants to learn more about you by “hearing your voice”
  • Tone of honesty and transparency makes his message very compelling
  • Follow Dave @dave_carpenter the link is above

  1. I don’t know, I’ve found the AutoDM to be the thing I just avoid altogether.

    Sure, Dave’s tone is fine. But 98% of the DMs are not like this, and most involve Mafia and other invites.

    My counsel is to avoid Auto DMs.

  2. I dislike most auto DM’s. Statement 1 is honest and impersonal making statement 2 necessary. The rest wouldn’t impress me much. That said I use TrueTwit as a verification service to help me sort out followers and people for the most part have responded well to: BradHart uses TrueTwit validation service.

    It really helps sort out who is serious about following me and wants to be followed in return. Beyond this I rarely initiate DM’s with anyone other than my wife.

  3. Dave,

    I am with you 100%. I think that 99.999% of the auto DM first time messages are garbage MLM, affiliate marketers, hard sell con artists, and Mafia game geeks! But remember it is a valuable channel as long as the message is personalized. Once you get to know someone it is also a great way to filter information. But overall, I have become so numb to the dumb messaging that I barely read DM’s anymore. Thanks for commenting!
